How Long will Homemade Mayo Keep?

The recent homemade mayo thread (and it's links) got me to thinking about making my own homemade mayo. Any advice on how long it will keep in the fridge?

Thanks!

    I often keep it about 5 days. I'm sure there is a rule somewhere but 5 days just seemed about right so that is what I do. Not been any issues with quality or illness.

      Since you're dealing with uncooked egg, I wouldn't keep it around more than a couple of days. In general, I only make what I need for the meal I'm having, then just toss out the rest.
